Team Liquid is one of the largest esports brands in the West. Our players compete at the highest level in StarCraft 2, League of Legends, Dota 2, Hearthstone, CS:GO, Street Fighter, Smash, Fortnite, Rainbow Six, Quake and PUBG. Follow our news coverage as our players participate in tournaments around the world.
League of Legends
When we stare at ourselves in the mirror, do we truly see our selves? Or do we see ourselves as how we want to be seen, or, more crucially, as how we want to be?
Hbox vs Mang0: A Rivalry Reaching Its Prime
As they lazer-lock their eyes onto an outdated CRT, hundreds seated in nervous angst behind them, it lingers. Silence. Not just silence, that tense silence that whispers more than words ever could. Both Liquid Hungrybox and C9 Mang0 acquiesce to their roles in this underlying melodrama. This is a rivalry reaching its prime.
Snute at BlizzCon: The WCS Global Finals
Finally, BlizzCon (or at least, opening weekend) has arrived. After a long year of tournaments, and more than a few bumps along the way, one Liquid player has reached the pinnacle of the game: Snute. After his title at WCS Copa Intercontinental, Snute is arguably one of the in-form players heading into the tournament. Group will be tough, be Snute has what it takes to succeed.
When It Comes to the Crunch
As the first official Melee coach, Crunch is the man behind the camera giving guidance to Juan “Hungrybox” Debiedma in the most successful of all these partnerships thus far. Hungrybox is arguably the number one Melee player in the world right now, and after coming off a first place finish at EVO this year, Crunch is feeling hopeful about their future as a duo.
The Case for Voting Chillin to Smash Summit 3
If Smash Summit is the tournament that packs the most personality into one weekend, then no one fits the bill better than Chillin. Smash's rap guru has the skillz on the mic and with a controller, so spend your votes over at Smash.gg. Still need convincing? Then this is the case for voting Chillin to Smash Summit 3.
Bootcamp Stories: Laser Tag with the SC2 Boys
StarCraft is often known more for its individual aspects than being a team game, but having team mates certainly makes a big difference. We recently had a bootcamp with all our StarCraft 2 players in attendance at Liquid HQ, and the players spent their time theorycrafting and helping each other improve their game.
League of Legends
A New Methodology
We are excited to announce that David Lim, our TLA coach, has been promoted to Head Coach of our LCS team. This follows a successful year where he led our Academy team to 1st place in HTC Ascension, and within reach of an unprecedented promotion into LCS. It's impressive how quickly he has translated his sports coaching background into League of Legends, and we are sure that he will continue to grow in his role in the future.
